The Weekly BioDIGESTer: 1/21

With campus cafes closed on Monday (1/21) in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day,  we only loaded  2,238 lbs. of food scraps into the composting system last week, or about 40% less than the average weekly amount.

We did not detect any visible pieces of recently tested bioware in the 2,000 lbs. of off-loaded compost. These results are promising, but we will wait for this week’s batch of compost to know for sure just in case the material didn’t fully migrate to the end of the vessel.
